The concept of francophonia tends to remain homogeneous and fixed in official and day-to-day parlance. Non-native speakers of French who live outside the geographic French-speaking world(s) and who use the language on a daily basis (often with other non-native speakers) are not systematically included in the notion of Francophonia. This article suggests a new perspective on francophonia, the third circle, which is based on extraterritoriality, instability and liquid identification in interaction. A deconstruction of discourses on Francophonia, the solid native speaker and francophone culture will provide the basis for a definition of liquid francophonia.
